Original Birthday eCards, you say?
Yes. it’s hard to imagine seeing Original Birthday eCards involving puppets considering that puppets have been around forever. Well, to be more precise, the first puppets were developed in India around 1000 B.C. It is believed that the first puppets were just simple stick figures created with many different materials found on the ground.
Do not be mislead by their simplistic design and appearance. The acting itself was flamboyant and puppet shows were far from humble but actually, they were loud and full of all sorts of fanfare. Many cultures adopted puppets as their favorite form of entertainment and in time developed their unique versions of puppet performances, which more often than not showcased their unique culture as well. In the same way as stories and fables back then, puppet shows soon became everyone’s favorite way to have a terrific time with friends and family, and this was passed down from generation to generation.
